If I Blog It, Will I Do It?

Today, I was 216.5.....

I hope I've gotten over the 217 hump that I got to before Christmas and couldn't get below.

A week ago Monday, I put my exercise clothes and my tennis shoes in a bag in my car.

Last Wednesday, I wrote in my daytimer all the times and places for water aerobics, yoga, and pilates in my town.

That's as far as I got.

Even I know that just thinking about exercising is NOT THE SAME AS EXERCISING!

If it were, I would be so effing petite!!!

I've learned how wonderful a blog can be to hold someone accountable. But, can a blog hold me accountable to something I haven't done yet? Something I just PLANNED?

I'm going to try.

Here it is:

I am going to go to Deep Water Aerobics today at 5:30.

There. It's written. It's in the blog. Now, it can't be changed. I have to do it.

We'll see.....


  1. O.K.
    I need to tell you this before I send my blog to Facebook.

    I couldn't find my swimsuit! And the one Barb loaned me itches too bad.

    So, I'm sitting in the YMCA parking lot rather than the Aquatic Center parking lot.

    And, I'm going to go in. For reals.

    I am going to go in and get on the treadmill.

    I don't want to.

    My insides are whining "no, no, no, no! go home! go to sonic! go anywhere but here!"

    So, blogging about plans does work. I may not be doing exactly what I said I was going to do, but if I hadn't already written this blog - I can guarantee you, I wouldn't be here!

  2. Find your suit you will absolutely love deep water aerobics....

  3. I think you have observed some very interesting points , thank you for the post.
